It’s no secret why Bim Bam Burgers and Wings were dubbed, “Best burger in town” by fellow Grove go-ers.

Owner Tony Barragan had a vision in May 2013 to reinvent “Christy’s Burgers,” and he did, along with co-owner Yearby Weaver. Barragan wanted to create a restaurant in Oxford that would be fresh, and effortless for his consumers to get. You can enjoy their food seven days a week, or even have them cater to your tent in the grove; they’re located on West Jackson Avenue in Oxford. Although notorious for their burgers and wings, they also carry a wide array of items on their menu.

Bim Bam Burgers and Wings came about by a craving for wings

Barragan had come home late one night from work, and wanted to order wings. At the time there had not been many places that had delivered wings in Oxford, and it was hard to get anything delivered easily. Since Christy’s was going out of business, and Tony was the general manager he decided to invest his money and buy out Christy’s. His main goal had been to completely rebrand Christy’s by changing the name, menu and rehiring completely new staff.

Bim Bam Burgers and Wings is the new name

No, Bim Bam Burgers and Wings has not always been their name. Bim Bam Burgers and Wings  changed their name on January 1, 2015, from Bim Bam Burgers. They did this due to high demand for their wings. It comes as no surprise they have amazing burgers, but Barragan stated the want for wings is almost as great as their burgers. Thirty to 40 percent of their sales consist of wings. They are almost tied for the most popular dish they have, so they wanted to put an emphasis on their wings in the name as well.

A huge future ahead of them

Aside from two current locations, it looks like Mississippi State gets to enjoy a little taste of Oxford. Bim Bam Burgers and Wings is making its way to Starkville, hopefully by October. “We signed our lease Sept. 15,” Barragan Said. Except of course with a name change- Bully’s Burgers and Wings. Barragan stated, “people love our product, so we decided to expand.” A businessman from Starkville who frequents Bim Bam Burgers and Wings loved it so much, he helped fund to expand their chain. “We hope to eventually open in Batesville, New Albany and Arkansas soon.”

This quote says, “ Remember that half the things we worry about are never going to happen and the other half are going to happen anyway. So why worry? Eat your burger and live on!”

Fresh and fast is what sets them apart

“What sets us apart from competitors is our freshness,” Barragan said. There are not many casual fast places where you can get fresh food made quickly. “We don’t hot box our wings, which means to keep them out a certain amount of time before throwing them away. They’re made to order.” Along with that, their prices are reasonable to customers.
